Naya Kanga Peak, also known as Ganja La Chuli is yet another popular trekking peak situated in the Langtang region. Langtang is famed both as a locale for climbing snow peaks and one that affords spectacular panoramic views of high mountains in Nepal and Tibet. The availability of several snow peaks scattered around in Langtang for acclimatization make this region an ideal destination for mountaineers. Many small peaks in this area that require no previous climbing experience are suitable even for trekkers with little or no mountaineering history.
Naya Kanga is an attractive peak rising to the west of the Ganja La (5122m). On gaining the summit one is presented with magical vistas of some of the most majestic mountains in Nepal and Tibet: Langshisa Ri (6370m), Pemthang Ri (6836m), Shisapangma (8046m), Langtang Lirung (7425m), Pemthang Kapro Ri (6830m) and Langtang II (6571m). The trail taken is the same as that of the Langtang trek to Kyangjin (3749m). To the north, above Kyangjin, there are several hills that provide both magnificent views and spots for acclimatization. Northeast of Kyangjin Ri (4700m), there are two peaks Yala (5 500m) and Tsergo (5749m) that provide good climbing for the purpose. The normal route to take for the Naya Kanga peak climb is up the Northeast Face and the North Ridge.
